So What. I've Been Indexed On Google

Last Update: May 03, 2019

Exactly what is there to be excited about? I get indexed on Google, yes, but what does that mean exactly? I searched through Google only to find that I didn't see my content anywhere in the first 23 pages. So.... Am I supposed to be excited about this?

I understand what it means to get indexed yes, but what I don't understand is what all the hype is about. If I can't find my post then who else will find it? Is it like a waiting list where it will progressively get moved to the front of the line?

This just killed my mojo because I do hours of research on Jaaxy looking for keywords that only have about 10 or so competition and I check Google to find these same results yet when I use that same keyword my post still isn't there.

So what is the research for then? I'm so confused and aggravated! I really hope this isn't just a huge waste of my time and money.

Getting indexed is the first step. Then at least you know that Google is aware of your existence. Getting ranked takes longer, but if you keep going forward, it will happen. Just keep moving.

It really is early days yet, the age of your site is one of many algorithms which Google uses to determine ranking. This is a long term commitment. It is said it can take up to 35 weeks before you start to be ranked highly, by which time you would have at least 70 posts.

Would this mean that the younger your site is, the better you most likely ranked? My first content ranked in top position both in Google and in Bing for the 1st few days but later dropped to #4 position and my second content was indexed yesterday and ranked in 4th page in Google.

Ok, I get it now. I was confused a bit, but I know it takes time so I was curious as to how exactly this works. Thank you.

Are you writing content?, are you getting comments and using the site management to improve your website and it’s seo?
Even if you are it will take a few months. Being indexed just means they know you’re there, not that you’re at the top of the tree, stick with it and produce content and all will be well.

Thank you. I do, I write and engage, with over 500 comments on my site and 39 posts, but I only started in February, so I understand now. Thanks so much!
